Review of the 2005 Ford GT

  • As a 21st-century update to an American racing legend, the GT succeeds because of its timeless design, world-class performance and relatively low price.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    World-class performance, striking looks, easy-going nature, a theoretical bargain (if you can get one at MSRP).

  • Cons

    Awkward entry/exit procedure, some interior materials don't live up to MSRP, seats could provide more lateral support.

  • What's New for 2005

    The Ford GT is an all-new supercar that pays homage to the original GT40 that dominated international sports car racing in the mid- to late-1960s. It will be produced in limited numbers (approximately 3,500 units over a two-year production run) and offer performance on par with the world's most exclusive -- and expensive -- supercars.

Owning the ford gt

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Ford GT 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)

I have been restoring and collecting classic cars for over 25 years, and I have never driven anything as exciting and enjoyable as the new Ford GT. Even my Best of Show Winning 1967 Shelby GT350 does not compare to the feel and presence of this Ford Supercar. It is, without question, the most capable and enjoyable car on the market today. Even my Corvette friends are envious of the GT's capabilities and ease of handling. It is simply one of the fastest cars in the world at any price.




Fast and fun

Vehicle: 2005 Ford GT 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)

Car is very fast and handles like a race car. It will fishtail if pushed but is very controlable at all speeds. It gets very good fuel mileage, over 20 mpg at highway speeds, approx 85 mph. We live in AZ. At 85 in 6th gear its turning 2000 rpm. Very smooth power with lots of torque, will accerate in any gear from just over 1000 rpm. A little hard to get in and out but once in a real pleasure yo drive at any speed and a true rocket ship.




Superior to my ferrari in

Vehicle: 2005 Ford GT 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)

I purchased a slightly damaged GT with 1400 actual miles, and had Saleen redo the damaged front end with perfection with replacement parts on the paint line prior to closing. It is fast, reliable, and solid compared to all my other sports cars including BMW 8 Series and Ferrari TR512. Neck snaps back with the push of the pedal and you pray not to see the rear end in the windshield. Almost spun out of control several times...seems there are many wrecks in the first 1500 miles...right when the drivers feels comfortable in the car and pushes the envelope. The car starts more conversations and is the source for many to take photos while driving by. Draws crowds wherever parked. Love It!




A true master piece

Vehicle: 2005 Ford GT 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)

Words alone can not describe how good this car really is. All i can say is that I have been racing cars since the late 80's and nothing comes close to the FORD GT. I'm also a proud owner of Ferrari 575 and just sold my Lambo Gallardo. Without disrespecting its competitors I can say that the FORD GT is a class of it's own. A real driver's car.




Best car i have ever

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Ford GT 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)

Instant celebrity status while driving the car like no other I have owned (over 250). Runs the quarter in 11.5 @ 128, top end of 210 (track only). It costs more than twice as much as a performance comparable Z06 but twice the looks and curbside appeal. Total build is 4038, 300 totaled to date. Will increase in value as years go by and the number on the road are reduced. As of this post, only 50-75 are still on the dealer's floor. After they are gone, no new ones will ever be available again. A new one will never be cheaper. My children will inherit a wonderful classic.




More fun than imagined...

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Ford GT 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)

An absolutely awesome example of beautiful kinetic sculpture. More fun than I ever imagined it would be to drive. Better than 10% improved performance on the Bondurant High Performance Driving School autocross times than their Corvette Z06. Baggage capacity stinks but works for the overnight trip.

4.6L 1998 f150 and the 2005 feels like a Mustang GT. In addition to the missing power...it feels as if the 2008 is never in a low enough gear....

Gt 2005. Same problem. Dead battery after a week. I decided to store it in a locked garage without locking the doors of the Mustang. Gues what:Battery is o.k even after 2 weeks. That should be a hint ...
